Me and Knitting, Sittin' in a Tree - K-I-S-S-I-N-G
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes a sweater in a baby carriage! (Remember that verse, except with actual kids' names?)
Knitting, I think you and me are in for a long and fruitful relationship! Here we are at the Newark airport with you keeping me company during the layover that was supposed to be 5 hours, but ended up being only 3 hours because the flight from Albany was 2 hours late. I looked really smart for scheduling such a long layover when most of the people on the plane missed their connections. Some had to spend the night in Newark. Then the flight west was also very late, but you and me together made the time go quickly, with our friend MP3 player. I can see the benefits of having a book on MP3. Here's the zen I was missing with spinning. I have to expend some mental energy to keep track of what stitch and what row I'm on, so not enough mental room for worry or stress. It works! You can see that there's still some city girl in this emergent homesteader. How? I'm making my second project, the below hooded scarf in fuzzy charcoal grey, a variant of black. Totally a city color.
I wasn't paying attention and broke an unwritten blogging rule in the last few days. Don't let people know you're not going to be home. For those 3 of you that know where I live and could actually get there. If you go to my house to steal anything, can you finish washing the dishes? Thanks.
